It's quite strange when people frown upon and disagree when a so-called Black American calls him or herself and African. The excuse is use that they weren't born there, nor do they have any family or a particular country within the Continent. But when it comes to the Purto Ricans, Italians so-called Jews, etc.. that were born in America... It's ok for them to titled themselves after the native land of their fore-parents. Is this another way to keep the minds of the Africans born in America enslaved & subserviant? As long as you're a so-called BLACK man, you're an AFRICAN!
